Description

From the International No. 1 best-selling author of the DCI Ryan Mysteries. 

Impostor, is the first instalment in Ross's brand new Dr Alex Gregory series, narrated by actor Hugh Dancy.   

After an elite criminal profiling unit is shut down amid a storm of scandal and mismanagement, only one person emerges unscathed. Forensic psychiatrist, Doctor Alexander Gregory, has a reputation for being able to step inside the darkest minds to uncover whatever secrets lie hidden there and, soon enough, he finds himself drawn into the murky world of murder investigation. In the beautiful hills of County Mayo, Ireland, a killer is on the loose. Panic has a stranglehold on its rural community, and the Garda are running out of time. Gregory has sworn to follow a quiet life but, when the call comes, can he refuse to help their desperate search for justice? 

Murder and mystery are peppered with dark humour in this fast-paced thriller set amidst the spectacular Irish landscape.

Great beginning to a new series

I am a major LJ Ross fan and I just love DCI Ryan and his team. This new series introduces the psychologist Alex Gregory.

The locale of County Mayo, Ireland is a departure from Ross’s previous books and it works well. Alex is invited over to help profile a killer in a small town. There are many suspects, several alibis, and a bunch of red herrings. It took quite a while for me to figure out who the killer was. In fact, it came as a big surprise. That’s a good book, in my opinion. And the epilogue made me exclaim out loud.

The narration was first rate. Very well done.

I am looking forward to more in this series, as long as Ryan comes back, too.

Another Storytelling Triumph from LJ Ross

I’ve read everything LJ Ross has written. Her stories and style are compelling reads for me. However, now that I’ve just completed reading Impostor, I have to add riveting to the adjectives I associate with Louise’s books.(For me, riveting is a degree beyond compelling.)

This story is intense and vivid in imagery. As with the DCI Ryan series, she’s done another exemplary level of research, but of more significance for me, Louise has again translated her research into this story in a way that moves the story at a pace with only one negative outcome—I can’t put it down and it’s ending too soon, which now it has.

This book is unlike her DCI Ryan stories, an amazing feat, because the Ryan catalog is, on its own, so worth reading. And yet, one of the benefits of Ross’s Alex Gregory series is that it differs significantly in style from Ryan. Nothing lighthearted about Gregory, which has led me to add riveting to my Ross lexicon.

Thank you LJ Louise Ross. Looking forward to new releases in December.

Wonderful new series..


Wow! Another great book by LJ Ross. And I didn’t come close to guessing who the killer was. I will definitely read the next one, when it comes out.

I liked Alex and was always wondering about his nightmares, but I did have a feeling about Kathy. And I was right about that part of the story. This had some great secondary characters.

I've listened to all 13 books LJ wrote in the The DCI Ryan Mysteries so it's nice to have another series starting.

No sex and no swearing.

As to the narration: Hugh Dancy did a great job on the narration. I would listen to him again.

Enthralling tale, set on the West coast of Ireland

English criminal profiler finds himself in a small, close-knit Irish community. This is an enthralling tale revealing how much a good psychologist can analyse people’s behaviour and motives when there are no clues as to who is the murderer.

It was a wonderful experience. LJ is one of my favorite authors and hugh is a brilliant actor, and his narration was as gripping as the book itself, maybe more!

Excellent

Good pacing. Fine plot movement and characters drawn out very well. The narrator was very consistent and blended well with the action of the book this is one you won’t want to miss.

Psychologically interesting thriller

Dr. Alexander Gregory works in a hospital for the criminally insane, and ehen his mentor asks him to help out in an investigation as a profiler, he reluctantly plunges into everyday life in a small town in Ireland - where a sweet young mother has been murdered. Not your usual sensational and loud thriller but a quieter work concentrating on the nuances of life. It might happen anywhere. Brilliantly performed by Hugh Dancy, whose melancholic voice gives the story exactly the right atmosphere.

LJ Ross überzeugt

Zufällig auf diese Autorin über die Inspector Rayan Stories gestoßen, gefällt mir auch diese Serie mit gutem Plot, interessanten Charakteren und einer schönen Sprache, die England und GB geradezu fühlen lässt, hervorragend. Der Sprecher trägt dazu hervorragend bei.
